Mark Bannan 16 Jan, 2016 AltLd Agree with Ben! Hard IV,5 and not IV,4 when exiting right below roof. Fine route though, nicely exposed, well protected and interesting varied climbing.

AndyP 17 Feb, 2007 2nd O/S We didn't know we had climbed Vortex until we re-read the guide at the bottom of the route. We thought we might have been on Wavelength - typical SMC vague guide, this might sound radical up here but how about a photo topo! Maybe even a few to cover this corrie alone, it is afterall the most climbed winter corrie in Scotland. The route was decent, we turned the roof on the right so the grade drops to IV,4. We started up the lowest ice under spiral gully, I think, and moved together for about 120m, then climbed the route.
